Ouch. That has to be incredibly painfull. Yes,Cipro can be used for infections in the mouth, but I urge you to see a Doctor. The symptoms you are describing could be signs of orbital cellulitis. An infection that close to your eye is very dangerous. It's possible to lose your eye sight.

If you are in the USA please find a dental clinic that will see you right away.
Or if you have your own dentist call him/her right away because your infection could become critical if left untreated.
Take the Cipro until you call your dentist, I'm not positive it will work, but you may as well take it anyway.
I hope you call your dentist asap, or go to a clinic if you don't have a dentist!!
